Paper Tutorial

Mar 31, 2008

Here’s a scrapbooking paper freebie, together with a tutorial how to create it. By taking a simple background and adding some photoshop brushes, making a pretty and romantic page is fun and easy.bt_heart_deco_paper_tn.jpg

I found inspiration in an old card that I once made by scratching a heart shape into some silver-coated paper brought to me from a friend as a present from China.


I placed the scan onto an 8 x 8″ page, then added a new layer and drew lines with one of my favorite brushes, Barcelona Cafe. I then turned the layer opacity to “Luminosity”.


The paper needed some color, so I added some pink to the heart, and a smoky lilac line to the frame. To decorate the heart, I used the Brush This “Flower Brush” in three different angles and sizes, and then turned on the Bevel and Emboss effect, as well as a radial gradient overlay.

Fairies and Pirates

Mar 31, 2008

Well, it’s birthday season again. My daughter turned six, and had a wonderful Fairy and Pirates birthday party. I had fun making these two characters, specially the gold jewellery on the pirate. All the kids got dressed up and had so much fun. There was a big scramble for the sugar decoration, which got divided and devoured as soon as the candles were blown out.

Sequin Dynamic Brush Freebie

Mar 25, 2008
Inspired by my love of all things shiny and bright, I created this set of dynamic brushes that can easily create a realistic effect of sprinkled sequins, specially the last one in the set. They work best when painted with a dark color on a lighter background. Here is an example of how I’ve used the brush.
